I am really struggling with nursing :(. My lo is ten days old. I've already made it past extremely raw and stabbed nipples (althoght they are started to get scabs again) and ds refusing to latch. Now I a, dealing with a shallow latch that I just can't seems to fix. It is so frustrating. The pain during nursing is so intense I don't think I can take it much longer. And then because the latch is no good I get vasospam in my nipples for up to an hour after nursing. I literally can't bear the pain when he cluster feeds at night. I am having a hard time enjoying my baby and it makes me really sad. I just spend all my time thinking about the nest feed coming up and dreading it. I wish I didn't care about breastfeeding a much as I do. I feel like would be a much happier momma if baby was on a bottle.
Anyway, I was just looking for some support. I am working on his latch but have tried all the positioning tips I found online plus I have my midwives help me out. The LC can't fit me in until after chrristmas. This is my third baby and the seconds wasn't this bad but it hurt to nurse my oldest for a good three months. I don't think I have the heart to go through that again.
